Unwind, indulge and connect with passionate people offering truly unique experiences in adventure, food, wine and relaxation.
From the rolling hills and wineries of Waipara to the rugged limestone cliffs along the east coast, the incredible vistas, relaxed vibe and warm Kiwi hospitality in Hurunui offers an opportunity to slow down and make the most of your visit.
Create your own unique journey by stopping off at rugged surf beaches, tasting the award-winning flavours of the buzzing North Canterbury wine and food scene, or soak in Hanmer Springs Thermal Pools and Spa.
Stretch your legs and listen for bellbirds on a mountain walk or ride, or gain a deeper understanding of the land and the people who live here, by visiting a cellar door, farm or the Amberley Farmers’ Market.
Catering to all budgets, Hurunui offers accommodation from the quirky to the luxury, with options from railway carriages to secluded luxury cabins in the high country.
If you crave coastal realness, go east to Gore Bay or Motunau Beach. Eager for eco-comfort? Head to Mt Lyford. And luxury can be found throughout the region in the form of 5-star hotels, lodges and spas.
